Sherman has coached in the NFL for 17 seasons with seven different teams, beginning with the Houston Oilers in 1988. He has been a receivers coach or offensive coordinator for 12 seasons, and a running backs coach for five seasons.
Packers head coach Mike Sherman already has one vacancy on his staff. Defensive line coach Jethro Franklin left last week to take the same position at the University of Southern California.
Sherman said on Monday that he is in the process of evaluating his coaching staff, and will soon decide on which coaches he would like to retain for the 2005 season. Many football experts believe that Sherman will release defensive coordinator Bob Slowik.
